NFL - Week Five Review

Quick Hits - The Kansas City Chiefs not only lost the game on Sunday, 18-17 to the Chicago Bears, they also lost star running back Jamaal Charles for the season with a knee injury . . . . .  The Cincinnati Bengals did the near impossible by coming from 17 points down in the second half to defeat the visiting Seattle Seahawks, 27-24 in overtime . . . . .  Aaron Rodgers threw his first interception in Lambeau Field in nearly three years as the Green Bay Packers beat the St. Louis Rams, 24-10 . . . . .  Oakland Raiders defensive back Charles Woodson intercepted Denver quarterback Peyton Manning twice in a 16-10 loss against the Broncos . . . . .  both Manning and Woodson entered the NFL in 1998 and Woodson had never been able to pick off a Manning pass until this weekend and then he did it twice . . . . .  All five teams that entered the weekend unbeaten stayed that way . . . . .  The Detroit Lions were trounced at home 42-17 by the Arizona Cardinals and are the only winless team left in the NFL.
